Holidays in Romantic Germany

Discover natural and cultural treasures


The romantic region around Rhine and Moselle is perfect for a holiday in Germany offering enchanting places and cities, excellent wine regions and great opportunities for hiking tours and bike holidays.

Rhineland-Palatinate with its ten holiday regions offers beautiful natural and cultural landscapes: River valleys, vineyards, deep forests, rocky seas, lakes and maars form a unique characteristic landscape. Each region brings with it its own history of over 2,000 years, which can still be found today in the landscapes, castles, palaces, historic towns and traditions. 

 

The Eifel, the Hunsrück, the Westerwald and the Pfälzerwald form the most beautiful low mountain range landscapes for your outdoor holiday. Surrounded by the idyllic river landscapes of the Moselle, Rhine, Nahe, Ahr and Lahn, you can perfectly combine hiking or cycling tours with a visit to a city. Six of Germany's 13 wine-growing regions are located in Rhineland-Palatinate: You can taste the most delicious wines from the winegrowers of the Ahr, Moselle, Nahe, Romantic Rhine, Palatinate and Rhinehesse. Rhineland-Palatinate is not only the most wine-rich state, but also the most forested in Germany. In eight nature parks and two national parks you can experience flora and fauna up close, especially the wild cats in the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park are an exciting highlight.
